Welcome to Twisted Sisters Website
Our landlord, The Golden Age Comics, has decided not to renew our lease. After some searching for a new location, we found the perfect spot less than a mile from our current location. Effective November 19 we will open at our new location, 240 Gill Street in Alcoa.
Our new location will be in a stand-alone building which is larger than our current location; and the parking is great and there are no holes! There are about 20 parking spaces in front of the store, including a designated handicap spot. There's additional space in a paved area to the right of the striped lot that can be used in overflow situations. Parking on the left side of the building is designated for the apartment tenants above the store.
Since the building is larger, that also means we will have a larger classroom. The building is currently being leased unto early November. However, beginning in September we will start to do some behind the scenes setting up of new shelves, tables, and moving display shelves. We will continue to operate as usual in our current location through Saturday November 10.
For those unfamiliar with Maryville and Alcoa, the 2 cities connect to each other and in the area of the new store, the city line is near the Blount County Library....again, less than a mile from our current location. Many times our travelers and even the residents have no idea when they are in Maryville or Alcoa.
We're excited about our upcoming move and look forward to many years as a business in Alcoa. We hope you share this excitement and will continue to visit our store. As always, we appreciate your business and welcome your ideas and suggestions.
We will be posting updates regarding our move, on a regular basis, via e-mail, Facebook, and the website. Watch for our Grand Re-opening in November or early December.
HANDICAP RAMP - We have a portable handicap ramp for people who need assistance into our store. If you are in need of this, please call ahead or have someone come in and let us know.
SEPTEMBER FEATURE -- Time to think of Fall and Tennessee Volunteers. So....our feature for September is 20% off all Orange fabric.
UPCOMING EVENTS AT TWISTED SISTERS QUILT SHOP
Twisted Sisters Quilt Shop has a lot of exciting things planned for the next few months. Our next demo event is scheduled for Thursday September 27. Sue will be showing you how to quickly make some placemats. These will make great items for your house and/or gifts for the upcoming holidays. The times for the demos are 9-9:30 and 9:30-10:00. There is no cost for this event. We also added another beginning collage class. Check the website or stop in the store to register for our events and/or classes.
PILLOWCASE CHALLENGE (American Patchwork & Quilting) -- Sincere thanks to everyone who continues to make and donate pillowcases to our pillowcase challenge. At the beginning of the year we set a goal of 500 pillowcases; 200 more than last year. You have been so generous that we reached that goal earlier this month. So...we raised the bar with a goal of 700 pillowcases. Thanks to the Maryville Church of Christ Quilt Ministry for donating 30 pillowcases. They even had some 11 year old girls make their first pillowcases. We will continue to collect them the remainder of this year. As a reminder, our pillowcases will be donated to Blount County Foster Parent Association and Blount Family Promise Again -- sincere thanks. We are overhwelmed with your generosity.
Pillowcase goal: 700
Pillowcases donated: 690
Pillowcases to achieve goal: 10
CLASSES -- We continue to have repeat classes that are popular as well as new ones. We encourage you to check out our website to see what events and classes are out there...and then, sign up before the class fills up.
